Jason Terry seems to have embraced the Celtics culture faster than any free agent acquisition in NBA history — especially for a veteran who has won a championship in another city. Terry has yet to play a regular season game in Boston and he already sounds like someone who bleeds green, complete with knowing who to love and who to hate. The former Maverick talked about that in the...
The NOC has been doing behind-the-scenes videos with new Celtic Jason Terry. In the most recent edition just released, JET and Dionte Christmas play a game of pick-up basketball against 5 female basketball players. Hopefully this wasn't the reason Christmas got waived from the team!
This one just in from Jason Terry is a Celtic...Terry and Christmas play 2 on 5 vs the Roxbury womens team and lose! Thanks to Tom Reed at thenoctv.com

Jason Terry will be posting an online diary up on ESPN Boston. Here's a snippet from his first entry:
The funniest moment on the trip was we were attracting a lot of attention because of KG's [Kevin Garnett] size. He's so tall that they recognized him easily. We were getting bombarded by pictures. So all of sudden, KG takes the camera from one lady and started taking...
From today's Boston Herald:
“I’ll always be disappointed with that because of the way it went down. But it is what it is, so I’m over it, but, you know, you’re always disappointed about stuff."
Coach Rivers goes on to say:
"But as far as our team, I moved on the next day. We were trying to build our team. We already had Jason Terry; we knew that. So my next...
We know it's bound to happen once in a while. The head coach has a player's back and the ref has enough and out goes the coach. It's happened a few times with Doc and will probably happen again. Last night, Doc put his coaches in that position by staying in the locker room after the half. Word is that Doc just wanted to watch the presidential debate but that's...
Rajon Rondo and Ben Affleck have the same problem. It’s called the “yeah, but…” syndrome. This disease forces someone to bring up a person’s shortcomings whenever they are complimented. Here’s an example. Imagine you’re talking with friend and Affleck comes up.
You say, “ Hey I just saw Argo. It’s fantastic. Ben Affleck has totally established himself as one of...
Jason WhitneyIt’s always fun to watch the little guys show off their hops for monster dunks, especially in the half court set. Rondo, who is listed at 6’1 doesn’t dunk often, but certainly is exciting to watch when he does. During this play, Rondo throws the ball into Kevin Garnett, then curls off of him baseline for a powerful one-handed flush. I have a feeling Rajon Rondo...
I do not want to see this become reality, but it might be what we need.
So far, the 2012-2013 Boston Celtics have looked pretty good, well other then tonight. We have one of the deepest rosters, on paper, in the NBA. We added plenty of pieces in the off season and look like we retooled for another run. Even though we lost #20(yeah that's exactly how I will refer to him throughout...
Courtney Lee has all the tools. He can shoot, jump, run,
dribble and defend. With all those skills, the biggest question is why the
27-year-old Western Kentucky product is on his fourth team in five NBA seasons.
A quick rundown of the point guards Lee has played
with in his career may help explain why. Jameer Nelson, Devin Harris, Kyle
Lowry and Goran Dragic...
Not much to say about this one except to learn from it and move on. The Celtics stayed within 2 in the first quarter but after that, it wasn't even close. Once again, one of the culprits was turnovers as the Celtics gave the ball away 21 times. Another problem was once again their pick and roll defense. That's one thing they have to solve before the season starts because...
The pregame show confirmed that KG will be sitting out tonight. The starting lineup will be
The young guys will get lots of playing time tonight and we may see more of what they are capable of doing.

The Celtics hit the Garden parquet for the first time this preseason. Jeff Green brought out some heat, as he wore the Nike Hyperposite in a Atomic Green/Charcoal colorway. The Nike Hyperposite is a $225 high end basketball shoe released by Nike earlier this summer. Check out The Shoe Games post about the shoes.
Rajon Rondo debuted a pair of white/gorge green/volt Nike 2012 Hyperfuse...
